Love goes toward love



Found this post on outfits inspired by Shakespeare :) Girliness AND nerdiness are compatible after all!

Link is here.

Yes yes, I'm incorrigible - I really do like Romeo and Juliet. Yes I KNOW its the most over quoted and trite play there is - but just listen to some of these lines!

R:
If I profane with my unworthiest hand
This holy shrine, the gentle fine is this:
My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand
To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.

J:
Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much,
Which mannerly devotion shows in this;
For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch,
And palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss.

R:
Have not saints lips, and holy palmers too?

J:
Ay, pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayer.

R:
O, then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do;
They pray, grant thou, lest faith turn to despair.

J:
Saints do not move, though grant for prayers' sake.

R:
Then move not, while my prayer's effect I take.
Thus from my lips, by yours, my sin is purged.

J:
Then have my lips the sin that they have took.

R:
Sin from thy lips? O trespass sweetly urged!
Give me my sin again.

I beamed at that! And will use this to pick up women from now on.
